Decolonization, Storytelling and Nature Connection

KPU Surrey
Main Courtyard Pond


Join KPU’s Indigenous artist, writers and knowledge keeper in residence for an outdoor gathering at KPU Surrey.
Richard Pierre, Selina Boan, and Napatsi Folger will share stories, inspirations and challenges connected to engaging in meaningful decolonization work, creative practice, and nature-based learning. We will also have discussions connected to the xéʔelɬ KPU Pathway to Systemic Transformation:
Pathway 1 - Reflecting Upon Our Own Biases
Pathway 2 - Open to the Community
Pathway 3 - Indigenous Voices Matter
Pathway 4 - Holistic Learning and Wellbeing
Pathway 5 - Weaving Indigenous Worldviews
Pathway 6 - Thought Meets Action

During this outdoor gathering we will walk around some of the outdoor areas at KPU Surrey, ending up at the Westerman property greenspace (directly south of Birch Building, beside the Community Gardens).
Open to KPU faculty, staff and students wanting to connect their teaching and learning more to the land, be holistic in their approach, and engage in decolonial work.
Event is on rain or shine. In case of very poor weather we will meet indoors. Location: Fir 128
